polishing is easy. you may go for it. But in time it looses its shine. maybe just after polishing a kind of lacquer might be applied to keep the shine.
I made a pair of new braces for this instrument by using a small lathe at our workshop. they are not perfectly identical to the original but does the work. the key to straigthening is to apply gradual force very very slowly. IT is difficult to control force applied manually. An easy way of applying force is to screwing together the tips of a wire wrapped around the parts to be bent inwards or needs to be brought together. I even used the bottom end of our workshop wrench recently to push a bent down leadpipe of an old cornet up to its original position and nowadays using it without problems. I always use softer and wider surfaced support pieces to distribute the force. Parts of old silicone molds work great. Not dented a pipe so far.
I have two and a half puch magnums with z50 engines. two of them are quite complete, with running engines. one have clutch problem, the clutch is not seperating the wheel from the engine. The other one goes, it has some engine adjustment needs and the 1st gear disengages while climbing. Plan to restore them in time, converting one of the frames to a cafe racer type of bike looking like the ones in the pics, although I can not decide where to start and what to do for now. Only occasionally taking the driving one for a quick tour around the block. finding parts etc is a nightmare. :D
the problem is fixed. the files are downloadable now.

I don't have an instructable for the radio but it is in fact just a box around the mp3 player. I have instructables for building similar boxes. you can take a look at them. it is easy. go on, build your version.
thanks, post photos of your build ;)
Hey I didn't use glue to fix the gears, there are screws holding them and they turn and even turn each other :D
I used to have an other fiat 126 in 1997, which had a russian made 12V fan(same fan they used in their mig fighter planes and even space stations). It broke down in time and I kept it in some box for years, just to use the tri bladed fan salvaged from it in this project. But any fan will do propably. :D
Yes, I made the radio too. a 20w mp3 player inside with remote control. Outside is some scrawp plywood and decorations.
